The worst part about having food issues - whether you consider yourself "addicted" in any sense of the word, whether you have a disorder, or whatever - is that unlike a "regular" addict, you simply cannot give up food.
An alcoholic can quit drinking. She can refuse to buy alcohol, refuse to go to bars, refuse to go to situations where alcohol is being served. If she feels a compulsion to drink, she can figure out some way to remove the temptation.
You can't do that with food. You HAVE to eat to survive. And sure you can remove the junk, remove the fatty foods, remove the processed foods, but you can still overeat and gain weight on healthy foods. And you have no way to completely, 100% separate yourself from what tempts you.
That's, IMO, the MOST difficult part about dealing with food issues.
I"m glad that you've figured this out for you and that you're taking steps. Good luck with the meetings and remember you can always come here to talk or vent or get support!
